Michelle Bachmann is telling Iowa radio listeners that it is reprehensible of the media to report that her entire staff in New Hampshire has walked off the job, but Russell Goldman of ABC hasn’t retracted his story that they have! Here is a little of his latest post on the matter:
Rep. Michele Bachmann’s entire New Hampshire staff has quit her campaign, another dark omen for the GOP candidate who has lost several senior officials in recent weeks.
Five staffers, including Jeff Chidester, a longtime friend and conservative talk-radio host, have left the Minnesota congresswoman’s campaign.
The departing staff members also included Nicole Yurek, Tom Lukacz, director of operations Matt LeDuc and Southern New Hampshire Field Director Caroline Gigler, as first reported by ABC affiliate WMUR.
Gigler has already found a new job with Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s campaign, according to a report in the National Journal.
The staffers said they quit the campaign because Bachmann had not paid sufficient attention to New Hampshire.
